2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the rice

In a small sauce pot, combine the rice and 1 cup [1¾ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 25 to 30 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm. Meanwhile, prepare the pico de gallo.


Make the pico de gallo

  • Cut away the cores from the tomatoes; coarsely chop the tomatoes.
  • Peel and coarsely chop the onion; measure out ¼ cup [½ cup] and finely chop for the pico de gallo. Set aside the remaining coarsely chopped onion for your protein. 
  • Juice the lime.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.

In a medium bowl, stir together the tomatoes, finely chopped onion, cilantro, and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] lime juice; season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep your protein

Ground meat (including plant-based): Cut a small corner from the ground meat packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.

Shrimp: Rinse and drain the shrimp. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. 

Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut into ½-inch cubes. 

Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel; cut any large pieces in half.


Cook your protein

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the coarsely chopped onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. 

Add your protein and taco seasoning and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring and breaking up the ground meat if using, until the protein is browned and cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes for shrimp, 4 to 6 minutes for tofu or plant-based chicken, and 5 to 7 minutes for ground meat. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. While your protein is cooking, prepare the beans.


Prep and cook the beans

  • Rinse the black beans.

In the same pan used for your protein, stir in the beans and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water and cook over medium-high heat until the beans are heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Transfer the rice to individual bowls. Top with your protein, beans, guacamole, and pico de gallo and serve.
